Book Log (2022)

Behold: my 2022 book log. As usual, previous years’ book logs may be found here: 2016; 2017; 2018; 2019; 2020; and 2021. Last year, I read the fewest number of books I have read for years, and I am determined that this year, I will once more achieve my annual goal of 52 books in 52 weeks.
